Power Ranking Methodology

 

These rankings were provided by a committee of people that offer different views in the Rocket League Community. We use a system similar to the Associated Press power rankings for College Football or Basketball – a panel of writers vote on who they think should be listed and an average is produced from these rankings. The members of this committee consider several factors when determining their rankings and the competitive results data that is referenced comes from the past few weeks. Each member of the committee has their own method for how they rank the teams, though they are consistent and similar.

POWER RANKINGS

 

#1 We Dem Girlz: Remkoe / gReazy / Maestro |

Despite being a non-believer of We Dem Girlz last week it’s very clear to me now who belongs at the top of the EU Power Rankings after their 4-1 pounding Mock-It EU at this week’s GFinity. In 5 games, WDG outscored MEU 13 to 6, with We Dem Girlz converting on 26.0% of their shots. Throughout the entire series WDG looked in control, despite a Mock-It squeezing out a narrow 1-0 win in game 2 of the best of 7 series. I look forward to the inevitable rematch. I strongly believe that could be the best rivalry in Rocket League as we approach the RLCS. -DMRawlings

 

#2 Mock-it eSports EU: Paschy90 / Sikii / Miztik / Scrubkilla |

Mock-it EU maintain 2nd this week after a big match against We Dem Girlz in Gfinity, in which they were beaten 4-1. This final showed the strength of WDG right now as the number 1 team in Europe. The roster that played in this final however was Paschy, Miztik and Scrubkilla, which of course is not the line-up they will be using for the RLCS due to Scrubkilla’s age. Instead they will be using Sikii who I feel is an integral part of the team’s system as he handles the defensive work of the game so well and allows Paschy and Miztik to attack with more risk. As a result of this I can see why WDG was able to beat them so handily as MockEU let in a considerable amount of goals. MockEU’s only other games came from Gfinity this past week, in which they took out Dot Dot Dot and C&J (weirdly renamed to ‘Dopefish’) 3-1 in each case. In both series they looked in control and cements their place as the 2nd best team right now in EU, especially considering C&J’s rise to 3rd this week. Looking ahead I would like to see Sikii used more as I feel they’re a more well-rounded system with him, despite not being as mechanically skilled. Moreover, it would be interesting to see how that iteration of the roster would fair against WDG specifically, as it’s evident the weaknesses of the Scrubkilla variant of the roster are easily exploitable by WDG. -Lunation

 

#3 Crown & Jewels: Killerno7 / Yeezy / Stocki / ViolentPanda | Up 4

With only one event under their belt last week, it was hard to get a truly accurate gauge of the new Crown & Jewels team. However, having the chance to see them play a little more this week has shown that this C&J team may still be a very strong version of their old selves, but definitely have some room to improve upon. Playing as “Dopefish_Lives” during this past week’s Gfinity, the team was able to disassociate from their own names and team name and focus on the fundamentals, which ended at the hands of Mock-it EU. However, the addition of ViolentPanda – formerly of The 3 Musketeers – could prove to be extremely effective. Don’t be surprised to see Panda as part of the front 3 for C&J if trends continue. -Shalthis

 

#4 Supersonic Avengers: ELMP / Snaski / Doomsee |

Good evening, I’m Tom with Power Rankings news. Due to the Easter holidays there was no matches played by Supersonic Avengers, but with their strong past performances and the less than adequate performances of teams below them, Supersonic Avengers stay in their 4th place spot. RLCS is just around the corner and this team are definitely one of the top contenders to qualify, but they’ll have to play well if they want to make those LAN finals. This reporter believes they can do it, do you? Back to you in the studio, Tom. -Doomsee

 

#5 Flipsid3 Tactics: Markydooda / Kuxir97 / M1k3rules | Down 2

Breathe deeply and experience inner peace… Embrace the soft trickle of the fountains and serenity at Utopia Colosseum. All about the stadium prance little bunnies, fluffing their big tails, unafraid of engine noises, or the screaming of cheering eggs. You see, after the janitor came about and polished every tile and buffed the car statues to a shine, even he has gone home. As the sun slowly sets, we reflect on the last two weeks of inactivity and say to ourselves “FlipWh0?”

Please, FlipSid3, play some games… -DMRawlings

 

#6 KA-POW: al0t / Sniperkid138 / Turbopolsa | Down 1

Thanks Tom. Yes, it will indeed be a highly competitive road to the RLCS finals and KA-POW are one of those teams looking to claim their spot there. KA-POW didn’t do quite so well in last week’s GFinity, crashing hard 3-0 to The Flying Dutchmen. If they continue this performance next week, I can expect them to fall down. -Doomsee

 

#7 Comrade Gaming: O.S.P. / Juuksey / ll_Musketeers_ll / Lunation | Up 1

There isn’t much to say about what Comrade did this week, since they didn’t really do anything aside from play in the eSportsWall monthly finals. But, because of the holiday weekend, it’s hard to punish not playing when there is real life to attend to. I am eager to see Comrade make their return to regular competitive play next week, due to the fact that they are so high in the rankings and very likely on the verge of eclipsing several of the teams above them with some very strong performances. Most likely, Gfinity will be the best measurement for that as most of EU’s top teams tend to play in that event. -Shalthis

 

#8 The Flying Dutchmen: Dogu / Jessie / PauliePaulNL / Vogan | New

Here they come flying into the eighth spot on the power rankings, it’s The Flying Dutchmen. This team had proven themselves in this past weekend through their results in GFinity and ESL. During GFinity, Dutchmen played with Vogan – who we later found out would be a permanent member – and made a solid run – beating KA-POW and RG eSports – into the semi-finals where they ran into a strong opposition in We Dem Girlz and losing out 1-3. The following day we saw the original roster face off in ESL, garnering a third place finish. Their ESL run was capped by quality wins over Dot Dot Dot and Team_letim. With this past weekend’s results and the addition of Vogan to the team will we see The Flying Dutchmen continue to fly up the rankings and prove their worth? -MrLittleThor

 

#9 BAM eSport: Seventh / Mikageishi / bohem57 / Tequilaz | Up 1

BAM actually climb a spot this week despite not having the most successful week in terms of results against notable teams. This is mostly due to The 3 Musketeers disbanding but also because I feel this team has had a good amount of consistency over the past several weeks and that should be respected as it’s often the case that teams in this range come and go very quickly as they have one or two significant performances but then fade into nothingness. As for the results themselves, they played in Gfinity, ESL and also the eSportswall monthly finals this week. In ESL they were defeated by a rising Absolution team 3-2, who barely miss out on the top 10.

Over in Gfinity, the BAM players were under a different name, ‘Jambon’. While it’s unsure why they did this, they did have a game against C&J in which they lost 3-1, rather expectedly. In eSportswall they played 2 games. The first of which was against a very modified team playing under the old eSportswall team name with Unknow as captain, a former player of said team. BAM won this game 3-2 which actually was quite a good result considering eSportswall were also playing with Ryuk and Ringtelefonring, both former players of the strong T3M line-up. BAM then lost to Dot Dot Dot in the next round however 3-1. While initially seemingly poor, that Dot Dot Dot team then went on to beat C&J in the final, which proved to be extremely impressive given their 3rd place ranking this week. So on BAM’s part, not too surprising in the end. Looking forward, I’m actually somewhat unsure how BAM will perform as I feel that there are certainly 2 or 3 promising teams behind them that appear to have more potential. Time will tell whether this is the case, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise me to see BAM drop a couple of places in the coming weeks. -Lunation

 

#10 RG eSports: Data / Seeks / Reganam | New

With a new roster RG eSports wanted to continue the success that the previous roster had and they succeeded. We first saw this new roster pop up in GFinity by reaching to Round 4 but that wasn’t going to be their best performance. Fast-forward to Sunday for ESL and we saw this team make their triumphant run towards victory in the tournament beating some significant teams. Their first notable result in ESL was versus – the now disbanded – Galatic Lions and continued the winning momentum when they got matched up against The Flying Dutchmen. The finals against Absolution proved to be a close affair where they were able to squeak out a 7-game series win to prove themselves worthy of being ranked in this week’s rankings. This week also saw our inclusion of the eSportsWall March Monthly Final which saw some of the top rated EU teams participate and RG eSports was one of them – even though they lost out to Comrade Gaming in the second round. Will this roster be a flash in the pan or can they continue this success in future weeks? -MrLittleThor
